Giraffe Brilla Day and Night

Here is another Polyvore we’ve created. It is seriously so much fun using one Evy’s Tree item and working a whole outfit around it {as you can see, I used the Giraffe Brilla}. You should head on over and try one out for ourself! If you find you have one that you would love to see here on What We Wore Wednesday, e-mail it to me at sarah@evystree.com. I would LOVE to check out what you guys have been cookin’ up!

Now on to my favorite part of What We Wore Wednesday! All YOUR beautiful faces! Thanks for sending your pics in. Keep them coming! Send a picture of you or a friend in Evy’s Tree gear to sarah@evystree.com and it can be on W.W.W.W.  :)

Here is the most darling girl named Haley from VA. Isn’t she beautiful in the Mini Black Polka Brilla?!

Julie Martinez wore her Independence Maggie Tee to a summer crab boil all the way in Lacassine, Louisiana!

How spunky does Kristel from SoCal look in this Hibiscus Brilla ? I love it!

And then there’s me and my smokin’ hot husband up here at Camp on the 4th. I’m wearing the Charlie Brown Freedom Brilla, which is currently on sale right now. :)

Can you believe Evy’s Tree has traveled to all these places?

Hoodie Pop Monday: Happy 4th of July!

Well, we had this scheduled as Sarah and I are up at youth camp, but for some reason this didn’t post…SO….here’s your Hoodie Pop Monday, on a Tuesday. ha.

 Happy 4th of July everyone!! I hope you are all out celebrating our wonderful God given freedom. This Hoodie Pop is going to be quick as I’m sure you are all out celebrating {at least I hope :)}.

I found this darling pullover on pinterest that I thought you would love:

And then I found this darling DIY tee on pinterest. Seriously, this would be so easy!
Ok, I know this has NOTHING whatsoever to do with hoodies or tees, but does this not look amazing?!?
If you follow me on my family blog, you probably know that my mom is English. Every now and then growing up my mom would make a good English parfait that looks very similar to the above. Wow, they  are GOOD!!! This is what I hope to be eating today. “Hope” is the key word here. ha. 
Happy 4th to you all. Hope you see lots of festive hoodies “pop” up today! And may God bless America!
xoxo

DIY {Do It Yourself} Friday: Sarah’s Birthday Bunting

Good morning to all you wonderful Evy’s Tree readers out there and welcome back to Do It Yourself Friday! Were you able to catch last week’s Ribbon Board? If not, click on the link, it turned out so great!
Anywho… This is Sarah and I’m going to show you a few pictures from my recent Birthday Party…
Here I am in showing off my bunting, which we are going to recreate today!


Yummm…


My in-laws backyard… Cute huh? All the quilts were handmade by my mother in-law’s mother and grandmother.


Cute little bookcase that I re-did that held our refreshments. I used Mason jars as glasses.


My darling little cake. I handmade the flower using soft pink tulle and a glass button. The cake was just a simple yellow box mix cake and the frosting was just a whipped frosting.


Picture frame collage I made.


Better look of the table.


I wanted something different for the water bottles, so I wrote “water” in four different languages on half of the bottles. The other half I simply wrote “23″.


Sooo… I know I’m WAY overloading you with pictures so this is the last picture-I promise! Had to leave you with some simple, country charm. Drinking out of Mason jars. It reminds me of home in Wisconsin! :)

If anything else catches your eye here that you would like to see in a later tutorial, feel free to comment at the bottom of the post and we will see what we can do. ;) 

Now to the DIY part of today… :)

I will show you how to make very simple, yet adorable bunting! I promise you, even if you are NOT the do it yourself type person, you will be amazed at how simple this is and how great you can have it turn out in a short amount of time.

What you will need:
1. Fabric of choice
2. Scissors
3. Bunting Template
4. Sewing Machine or Fabric Glue
5. Ribbon of choice


STEP ONE: Go to google images and print out a “Bunting Template”
Find a size/shape you like. I printed a triangle as big as the page using the template {HERE}.

Get together your material, template and scissors.

STEP TWO: Cut out triangles

STEP THREE: Take your ribbon and pin the fabric triangles to it. You are now going to sew them together!
**If you do not have a sewing machine here is where the fabric glue comes in. You would glue the fabric triangles onto the ribbon instead of sewing**

When I got in between the triangles, I just kept the sewing in a straight line.

You should now have a line like this!
STEP FOUR: Fold your ribbon in half and pin… This will cover any frayed edges or ugly backing. (This step is not necessary, unless the back of your bunting will be showing in any way… OR if you are a tad bid O.C.D like me–ha) 

This is what my backing looked like, so I decided to fold over and sew. 

Folding…

Trying to get it straight…

Pinning down…


STEP FIVE: Now all you do is sew all the way from one end of your ribbon to the other!
Hooray! Now you are finished!

Finished product…

Just one more… :)


And, like last week, we’re giving one away. Comment and tell me what you liked best about my party {hehe :)} and make sure you leave your email address! Random.org will pick a winner for next week’s blog post! :)
Oh…the winner of the Ribbon Board?

Congrats Felicia! We sent you an email, so when you get a chance, shoot one back with your address and we’ll get your board sent out to you!

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone!!
